Wisconsin: A Great State for Birdwatching

October 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Wisconsin, written by Wisconsin native and former BirdWatching magazine editor-in-chief Charles Hagner, is the most up-to-date photographic guide to the state’s birds available today. In this photo-filled presentation, the author will lay out the factors that make Wisconsin one of the best states in the country for birdwatching, including its location on the continent, a multitude of lakes, rivers, and varied landscapes, a welcoming culture and proud conservation history, and four full seasons. Hagner will outline the best ways anyone can learn to identify birds, reveal signs and clues that experienced birdwatchers rely on when identifying birds, and explain why birdwatching in Wisconsin can be enjoyed all year round, even in winter. Inclusive enough to list all the species that most birdwatchers stand a reasonable chance of seeing in Wisconsin throughout the year and yet compact enough to be carried in the field or read by the kitchen window, the American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Wisconsin is an ideal resource for beginning and intermediate birdwatchers. It shows 299 bird species in large, beautiful photos, and tells when and where to find them.
